The Presidential Palace announced Tuesday that there is no specific timeframe for the conclusion of peace deal with Hezb-e-Islami led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.
Deputy presidential spokesman Syed Zafar Hashemi told reporters that peace process is always complicated and it would be a mistake to confirm a timeframe regarding the peace agreement. Hashemi further added that small and big changes normally takes place everyday, in every seconds and at the final seconds of peace process.
He said the Afghan government will update the Afghan people once the two sides reach to an agreement. This comes as the Afghan government signed the draft peace agreement with Hezb-e-Islami last week. Deputy Chief Executive Mohammad Khan told reporters last week that the draft agreement has been signed and will become enforceable once the Hezb-e-Islami party signs it. Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah said Sunday that the Afghan government is close to conclude a peace deal with Hezb-e-Islami led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.
Abdullah further added that negotiatiosn between the High Peace Council and Hezb-e-Islami are underway. However, he insisted that the national interests of the country and the Afghan people are a top priority in all key issues, insisting that there will be no negligence in this regard.
He also emphasized that anyone joining peace process should lay down arms, stop insurgency activities, respect the Afghan constitution and reach to an agreement with the government.
The acting provincial governor of northern Balkh province of Afghanistan Ata Mohammad Noor has said the killing of Taliban supreme leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor may lead to more fighting and suicide attacks in coming weeks. Noor further added that the authorities had to brace for a surge in violence as rival candidates established their claims to the leadership of the insurgency. He also pointed to a spate of suicide bombings as well as the intense fighting that led to the temporary fall of the northern city of Kunduz last year as Mansoor looked to consolidate his newly won position.
In the meantime, Noor said some of the Taliban militants may surrender if the government works well pointing towards a scope for the government to exploit a likely fracturing in the insurgency. This comes as the Taliban group issued a statement late on Monday stating that the death of the group’s leader will not have any impact on the insurgency activities of the group.
The statement by Taliban further added that the campaign by the Taliban militants is not for a single person which would end or become weak by his death, warning that the death of their leader will spark more revolution.
On the other hand, reports emerged Monday regarding the start of negotiations among the Taliban leadership council to appoint a successor for Mullah Akhtar Mansoor.
The reports further added that the leader of Haqqani terrorist network Sirajuddin Haqqani, Mullah Omar’s son and his brother are among the possible successors of Mullah Mansoor.
The government of India is mulling to deliver more helicopters to Afghanistan in a bid to help boost the airpower of the Afghan National Security and Defense Forces.
The Office of the President in a statement said the issue was discussed during a meeting between President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The statement further added President Ghani thanked India’s support and cooperation with Afghanistan, specifically in delivery Mi-25 gunship helicopters and urged the Indian leadership to further assist the Afghan forces. In response, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the relevant security sector in the Indian government has been instructed to seek ways for the delivery of more helicopters to Afghanistan. President Ghani also hailed the Indian government for supporting Afghanistan in implementation of key infrastructure projects, including the Salma dam. He also pointed towards the construction of the Afghan Parliament Building by India and said such projects will further boost bilateral ties between the two nations. Afghanistan received three of the four Mi-25 gunship helicopters from India late in the month of December last year and days before the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Kabul. The decision for the delivery of Mi-25 gunship helicopters was concluded during the recent visit of Afghan National Security Adviser Mohammad Hanif Atmar to New Delhi. India has remained one of the key donors for the reconstruction of Afghanistan following the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001. Since 2002, the Government of India has committed USD 2 billion dollars to the socio-economic rebuilding of the Afghan state and society in accordance with the development priorities of the Government and the people of Afghanistan.
The supreme leader of the Taliban group Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was frequently using Karachi airport to travel to other countries with reports suggesting he travelled abroad through Jinnah International airport for at least 18 times.

However, a local news channel in Pakistan has reported that Mullah Mansoor travelled to Dubai 9 times using the airport and once to Bahrain. Citing the travel history of Mullah Mansoor, the local reported Mullah Mansoor travelled between the three countries from 2006 to 2012.
Muallah Mansoor first landed in Karachi via a private airline flight on the 12th of March 2006 from Dubai and approximately five months later caught a flight with the same airline to Dubai on the 23 August 2006 only to return on the 4th of October the same year, according to his travel history.
He was among the prominent commanders of the group when he was travelling to the other countries and his flights have been reported to be in September of 2007, 3rd of October 2007, 11th January 2008, 23rd November 2008, 5th December 2008, 2nd January 2010, 24th January 2010.
His last travelled has been reported to take place in 2012 when he caught a flight to Dubai on the 26th of January. The records available show, pictures of Mullah Mansour aka Wali Muhammad taken at the immigration counter, as well as in the airport premises.
Mullah Mansoor was killed in an airstrike carried out by the US forces in the vicinity of Balochistan province late on Saturday afternoon.
The Afghan government confirmed that Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour has been killed in a US air strike in a remote border area between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Mansour assumed the leadership of the militant organization in July 2015 soon after the whistleblowers revealed that the Taliban’s spiritual leader, Mullah Omar, had actually died two years ago. Mansoor was born in 1965 in the southern province of Kandahar and served as civil aviation minister during the Taliban’s regime in Afghanistan. Without an iota of doubt, Mansoor was gradually tightening his control on the Taliban movement by attracting other leading Taliban members, including a son and a brother the deceased spiritual leader and by carrying massive attacks on Afghan security forces. The fierce competition for the leadership of Taliban will be among Sarajuddin Haqqani, a close ally of Mullah Mansoor and a key commander of the Haqqani network, and Mullah Abdullah Rasool, the rival of Mullah Mansoor, who openly opposed Mullah Mansoor’s selection. Sarajuddin Haqqani, who became one of two deputy Taliban commanders last year, has the highest chance of becoming the new leader of Taliban because he has been in charge of the day-to-day military operations of Taliban since last year and maintains close contacts with many senior Taliban commanders. On the other hand, Mullah Rasool’s chances of succeeding Mullah Mansoor is minimal to none since his Taliban faction has suffered some shocking battlefield defeats in southern Afghanistan at the hands of Mullah Mansoor. Mullah Omar’s son, Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, and brother, Mullah Abdul Manan, who recently secured senior positions within the Taliban ranks could also be in the reckoning. The faith of the peace talks will depend on who will replaces Mullah Mansoor and how the Taliban will manage to come under one command. At least four civilians were killed and five others were wounded in an explosion in southern Kandahar province of Afghanistan, local officials said. The incident took place around 7 am local time in the vicinity of Shahwali Kot district targeting a vehicle of the civilians.
Provincial governor’s spokesman Samim Khpolwak said a passenger mini van struck an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) planted by the militants.
He said an investigation is underway regarding the incident and there are fears that the death toll would rise. No group including the Taliban militants has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident. The Taliban insurgents and militants belonging to the other insurgent groups are frequently using Improvised Explosive Device (IED) as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces. The IEDs are the main contributors to the casualties of the Afghan security forces but are also considered as a key factor in growing civilian casualties. At least 11 civilians belonging to a same family were killed in a similar attack in northern Baghlan province of Afghanistan last week. The Taliban shadow governor for southern Helmand province has been killed in airstrike in the restive Marjah district, local security officials said. The airstrike was carried out late on Sunday night targeting the Mullah Manan and his fighters in the vicinity of Marjah district. He said the airstrike was carried out as part of Khanjar operations which were launched six days ago in Marjah to suppress the insurgency activities of the Taliban militants. This comes as at least 8 militants were killed during an attack on the Taliban prison in Marjah district earlier. The Ministry of Defense said 7 militants were also arrested an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) manufacturing factory was destroyed along with a vehicle and two motorcycles belonging to the militants. At least 19 hostages were also released from the prison belonging to the Taliban militants during the raid, MoD added. The US Ambassador to Pakistan was summoned in the Foreign Ministry of Pakistan for an airstrike that targeted the Taliban Chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor. The statement also added that the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister also underlined that Pakistan and the United States had been closely coordinating in the fight against the menace of terrorism and that this cooperation needed to be maintained. The Taliban Chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was killed in an airstrike invlving US drones in Balochistan province of Afghanistan late on Saturday. The attack on Mansoor was widely welcomed by the Afghan government and security institutions as well as the US officials who called the elimination of Mansoor a major achievement in fight against terrorism. The Taliban militants group in Afghanistan has said the death of its leader will not have any affect on the group’s insurgency. The group issued a statement following the confirmation of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor’s death in a US airstrike in Pakistan.
The statement said the campaign by the Taliban militants is not for a single person which would end or become weak by his death. The statement further added that the group’s insurgency is aimed at implementing Sharia in the country and there will be no affect in their fight even if Mullah Mansoor has been killed. Admitting that the death of its leaders is a major harm to the group, the statement said their death will spark more revolution.
The death of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was officially confirmed by the US President Barack Obama, Afghan government, and Afghan security institutions.
Obama said the death of Mansoor was an “important milestone” in efforts to bring peace to Afghanistan.
The Afghan government said Mullah Mansoor sought refuge in the stranger’s soil and was repeatedly committing deception, concealing facts, killing innocent people and terrorizing people as well as smuggling drugs and preventing Afghanistan to gain development by emphasizing on continued war in the country. It also added that the supporters of Mullah Mansoor were sparing no efforts in committing atrocities against the noble and Muslim people of Afghanistan.
The US President Barack Obama reaffirmed the United States support to strengthen the Afghan armed forces and the Afghan government. He also added that the United States will work on shared objectives with Pakistan, where terrorists that threaten all our nations must be denied safe haven. Obama said Mansoor rejected efforts by the Afghan government to seriously engage in peace talks and end the violence that has taken the lives of countless innocent Afghan men, women and children. At least 1,167 militants have been killed since the start of Shafaq military operations to suppress the insurgency activities of the anti-government armed militant groups, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said. Sediq Sediqi, spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, told reporters that the operations were launched two months and are still being conducted against the armed militants.
He said at least 465 militants were also wounded and at least 154 others were arrested during the operations across the country. Sediqi further added that the Afghan security forces have increased pressures against the armed insurgents which comes as the Taliban group lost their leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor that could have a negative impact on the morale of the group’s fighters.
According to Sediqi, at least 711 operations have been conducted across the country since the operations were launched late in the month of March. He said the operations are mainly aimed at targeting the senior leaders of the anti-government armed militants and the key regions under the focus of the opoerations are northern Baghlan, northeastern Badakhshan and eastern Nangarhar province. Sediqi also added that the Minister of Interior recently visited the sourthern provinces to coordinate the military operations in a bid to improve the situation of the southern provinces, specifically the southern Helmand province. He said the Minister of Interior has instructed the Afghan police forces to use all force to suppress the insurgency activities of the Taliban militants.
The leaders of Afghanistan, India and Iran signed the Chabahr port agreement in Tehran, the capital city of Iran today.
President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and The Iranian President Hassan Rouani signed the agreement. The Afghan President directly travelled to Tehran today to sign the agreement after concluding a two-day official visit to Qatar. The draft agreement for Chabahar port was finalized during a meeting organized in Ministry of External Affairs of India in mid-April this year. Afghanistan is expected to have sea-land access through the strategic Chabahar port in Iran by the end of this year as the work on the port already begun by a joint venture of Kandla Port Trust (KPT) and Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) last year. Chabahar port using the existing Iranian road network and the Zaranj-Delaram road, constructed by India in 2009. The NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg issued a statement following the confirmation of Taliban Chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor’s death in a US airstrike in Pakistan.

The statement by Stoltenberg followed by President Barack Obama’s statement confirming the death of Mullah Mansoor in US drone strike.
The US Department of Defense first confirmed on Saturday that the Taliban supreme leader was targeted in a drone strike. MoI spokesman Sediq Sediq told reporters that the international allies of Afghanistan will target the terrorists, pointing towards the US drone strike that targeted the Taliban Chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor. He said Mullah Mansoor was in coordination with the other terrorist groups and networks since he assumed the charge of the Taliban group to commit atrocities against the Afghan people. Sediqi further added that the death of Mullah Mansoor will have a negative impact on the morale of the Taliban militants and insisted that the Afghan government will further increase pressure on the group. According to Sediqi, the Taliban Chief was insisting on continued insurgency and war in the country and was not in favor of peace talks. Calling Mullah Mansoor’s death a major achievement for Afghanistan, Sediqi the Taliban militants have an opportunity to join peace process. Mullah Mansoor was targeted in a drone strike carried out by the US forces in Balochistan province of Pakistan late on Saturday afternoon. His death has been confirmed by the Afghan government and security institutions as well as the US President Barack Obama. President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani arrived in Tehran to join the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the signing of Chabahar agreement.
President Ghani arrived in Tehran after concluding a two-day visit to Qatar at the official invitation of Emir of Qatar and to participate in Doha Forum. His visit to Tehran comes as the Indian Prime Minister is already in Tehran to discuss the issues of bilateral interest between the two countries besides signing the Chabahar agreement. Access to Afghanistan’s Garland Highway can be made from Chabahar port using the existing Iranian road network and the Zaranj-Delaram road, constructed by India in 2009. The top Taliban leaders have reportedly met on Sunday in the framework of their leadership council to discuss successor Mullah Akhtar Mansoor who was killed in an airstrike on Saturday. The leadership council discussed regarding various possible successors, including the notorious guerrilla commander Sirajuddin Haqqani, Taliban sources told Reuters.
Sirajuddin Haqqani is the leader of the notorious Haqqani terrorist network and he reportedly played a key role in resolving the Taliban leadership issues following the confirmation of Mullah Mohammad Omar’s death. According to the sources, Taliban were also considering Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, the son of Taliban founder Mullah Mohammad Omar, a potential unifier because of his father’s name.
Former Guantanamo detainee Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir and Mullah Sherin were also cited, the sources said. Mullah Mansoor was killed in an airstrike carried out by the US forces in Balochistan province of Pakistan as he was travelling in a vehicle.
The Afghan government and security institutions as well as the US President Barack Obama confirmed Mullah Mansoor’s death on Sunday.
However, the Taliban group has not officially confirmed Mullah Mansoor’s death so far.
The Ministry of Defense (MoD) said at least 8 militants were killed during an attack on the Taliban prison in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan.
According to a statement by Ministry of Defense (MoD), the raid was conducted in the restive Marjah district. The statement further added that 7 militants were also arrested an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) manufacturing factory was destroyed along with a vehicle and two motorcycles belonging to the militants.
MoD said at least 19 hostages were also released from the prison belonging to the Taliban militants during the raid. This comes as the commander of the 1st Brigade of 215th Maiwand Corps of the Afghan National Army General Noor Alam said Sunday that 23 hostages were released during an operation conducted in Sistani area late on Saturday night. He said the hostages were all ordinary civilians who were kept by the Taliban militants in the prison. The US President Barack Obama has confirmed the death of Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor in an airstrike carried out by the US forces in Pakistan. The Afghan intelligence and Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah confirmed the death of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor in an airstrike in Balochistan province.
The Taliban group however has rejected the reports and said Mullah Mansoor is health and alive. The former Afghan Intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS) Chief, Amrullah Saleh, has said the death of Muallah Akhtar Mansoor in Pakistan once again proves the legitimate claims of the Afghan people that the ongoing war is not an ethnic war but is a proxy war imposed on Afghan nation by Pakistan.
Saleh is the killing of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor is a good news for the people Afghanistan since he killed thousands of Afghan people during the past one year.
According to Saleh, the Taliban found Mullah Omar also died in Pakistan and Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was declared his successor who did not only bring any changes to the policies and approaches of the group but intensified committing more atrocities against the Afghan people. The former NDS chief further added that the death of Mullah Mansoor opens new doors of opportunities both in terms of politics and military to Afghanistan.
He said the Afghan government should mobilize thoughts of international community and Afghan people towards the main part of the war so that further pressures are brought on Pakistan besides increasing military aggression to weaken the grouip.
According to Saleh, unity among political elites, the government forces and further coordination among the security institutions in a bid to have better use from the available opportunity. Pentagon and the Afghan government have both confirmed that the vehicle of Mullah Mansoor was targeted in an airstrike in the southwest of the town of Ahmad Wal.
However, the Afghan government said an investigation is underway to confirm that death of Mansoor which would be announced as soon as they receive final information confirming his death. Although leaders do not need to be the Subject Matter Experts (SME) for the tasks that they direct, they must have a basic understanding of the systems and processes that they control. The selection of a new Taliban leader will be disputed, with rival groups in the Taliban ranks lobbying for their own leader and Pakistan struggling to appoint their own man. Haqqani was also very instrumental in reconciling differences amongst Taliban commanders and bringing the spiritual leader’s family to the Taliban fold.
Many of his key supporters died alongside many of his men in a battle with the Taliban’s main group. For now, the talks, which opened with a meeting on July 7, 2015 appeared to be off while the Taliban discussed their future. Farhan is an Afghan analyst and commentator on political and socio-economic affairs in Afghanistan. Agha Noor Kentoz said Muallah Manan was initially injured in the attack and later died of his wounds. David Hale was called in today by the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Syed Tariq Fatemi, to express concern over the drone strike on Pakistani territory on Saturday, 21 May 2016,” a statement by the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Pakistan said. It will also cut transport costs and freight time for India to Central Asia and the Gulf by about a third.
This is the time for Afghans to talk to Afghans, so that Afghanistan can develop in peace and security,” he added.
Alam, at least 20 militants were killed and over 30 others were wounded during the operations in Helmand province.
Without a strong foundation, the sides of the pyramid will soon crumble and fall as the base gives away. Without some knowledge of the technical skills that they direct, the pyramid soon begins to fall apart and the organization begins to operate in damage control mode. The leadership struggle is not only among the Taliban splinter groups but also with the Pakistani military establishment, who struggle to unify Taliban under one roof.
Haqqani has been trying to reconcile splinter groups of Taliban who refused to accept Mansour’s leadership since last year and actively worked in integrating his militant group, known as the Haqqani Network.
The Afghan government should get ready for fierce battle in coming months if Haqqani takes over Mullah Mansoor’s position.
In addition, Pakistan will most likely support Haqqani as he remains the most reliable partner of the Pakistani military establishment.  Evidence suggests that Pakistan continues to support the Haqqani network. Haqqani, who has a $5 million US bounty on his head, has appeared as the most dangerous warlord among the Taliban insurgent groups. The hopes of peace talks may collapse and bloodshed may increase if Haqqani becomes the successor of Mullah Mansoor.
